JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says he was shocked to find bullets lying around when he arrived at Edenvale High School in Johannesburg.

A shootout took place at the school on Thursday afternoon following an attack by robbers.

Lesufi says robberies in schools have become the norm.

UPDATE: Second man arrested for Edenvale High robbery

"I know every weekend, on Monday I will get a report that there has been a robbery in one of our schools. It is starting to be the order of the day", said Lesufi.

Lesufi said he was shocked when he arrived at Edenvale High.

"It was shocking yesterday, to be quiet frank, you know when I went inside that school and I see bullet shells all over there and saying it should be writing pens and calculators rather than have bullets inside the school premises", added Lesufi.

The MEC urged schools to minimise the amount of cash they have on their properties.
